§ MR. BIGWOOD
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, why it is that a regular postman is not appointed for the 941 Norwood-under-Southall district; and whether he is aware that the district has been left to casual service only for now nearly six months past?
§ MR. HANBURY
The case to which the hon. Member refers has been delayed in consequence of a revision of the post having been found necessary. The work had grown too heavy for one man, and other arrangements had to be made. A postman is, however, now under nomination for the establishment, and, if he succeeds in obtaining the necessary Civil Service certificate, he will be appointed without further delay.
